The mice were given scores according to their grades of neurological deficit at 24 h or 72 h postreperfusion. The neurological scores were evaluated using the method of Bederson et al. [15]. While being held suspended by the tail, mice that lengthened both forelimbs towards the floor without additional neurological deficits were rated 0. Mice that fail to extend consistent forelimb fully with the injured hemisphere were assigned grade 1. When being placed on a smooth surface, mice that had decreased resistance to lateral push on the shoulder towards the paretic side were assigned grade 2. Mice that circled to the contralateral side were rated 3. Mice that flaccid paralysis without spontaneous movements were allocated a grade of 4.
